HOPE not hate condemns, 'extremist exploitation' of 9/11 anniversary

Muslims Against Crusades web site, “exposes pact of hate”

Anti-extremist campaign group Hope not Hate condemned what they called “exploitation” of the tenth anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, after it emerged Islamist campaigners Muslims against Crusades had established a web site portraying a graphic reconstruction of the Twin Towers atrocity, alongside the slogan “You lost the War”.

The web site contains the sound of a roaring jet engine and a computer generated representation of an aircraft heading toward the twin towers, followed by an image of the World Trade center exploding in flames. The front page of the web site also asks whether the attacks were “justifiable” suggests the terrorists were “martyrs” and asks “Could There Be Another 9/11” before producing a countdown clock marking of the hours, minutes and seconds to the time the first plane struck the north tower.

Muslims Against Crusades have also announced they intend to hold a protest at the official 9/11 memorial ceremony in London, as part of what they have described as their “You Lost The War” campaign. The English Defence League have also announced their intention to hold a counter-demonstration during the service.

Commenting, Hope not Hate Director Nick Lowles said:
“This attempt by extremists on both sides of the political divide to exploit the appalling events of 9/11 should be utterly and unequivocally condemned. It again demonstrates the extent to which those who seek to divide our communities feed off each other’s warped agenda. Muslims against Crusades and the EDL are effectively joined together in a pact of hate. A plague on both their houses”.

Well done for condemning the nutters in 'Muslims against crusades'
Extremism breeds extremism. Edl Mac Bnp Nf. This country could do so much better without any of these fools.

Too right. MAC and Anjem Choudary are appalling (and they're the best present the extreme right in the UK ever received)

If this is correct, then the Antifa should do the sensible thing and take a step back and just let MAC and the EDL go at it on Sunday and in so doind advance themselves both closer to becoming what they should be already: proscribed terror groups. No Pasaran is a noble ideal but sometimes there's more than one way to skin a cat.

Absolutely correct. I'm fed up with hearing "What about the Muslims. You lot never say anything about them."

Anonymous - nice idea, but in practice any problems at an EDL rally invariably mean we all get lumped in the 'bad as each other' bracket, regardless of who's involved.

The government could have this site closed down in the blinking of an eye.

I wander why they don't?

Do M.A.C. fulfil a purpose of distraction for the goverment, formenting a useful distraction against leftwingers?

I heard an unconfirmed rumour that in solidarity with the American people, the EDL plan to forego standing around swigging Stella today...and will be drinking Budweiser instead.
